R&B crooner John Legend whose real name is John Rogers has been named as People’s Magazine sexiest man alive.
The Grammy-winning singer known for smooth vocals becomes the 34th person to be awarded the title since its inception by People Magazine in 1984.
”John Legend — a man so talented he became one of only 15 stars to achieve EGOT status last year — is making history yet again: the 40-year-old singer has now been crowned PEOPLE’S sexiest man alive,” People magazine said.
EGOT is an acronym for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony and refers to people who have won all four awards.
John Legend is married to model and author Chrissy Teigen and the couple has two children; a son and a daughter aged 3 and 18 months, respectively.
”I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure,” Legend said about his new achievement.
Last year actor and singer Idris Elba was announced as People’s sexiest man alive.
The very first winner of the title was actor and filmmaker Mel Gibson who was 29 years old at the time.
The 40-year-old Legend is a 10-time Grammy winner. He was also awarded an Oscar in 2015 for co-writing the song Glory from the film Selma among other honours.
